just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?
Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
—Galatians 3:6-9, 13-14

The gospel is to be shared with everyone. We know Abraham as the father of faith and the father of many nations. He was counted as righteous for his belief in God and God had promised that all nations would be blessed in him (v.8). As God did with Abraham, so He has justified us through our faith. Through Abraham, the Lord included the Gentiles in His plan for salvation from the beginning. As believers it is not our job to determine who will or will not share in the faith; that is God’s role. He has made it clear to us that the gospel is open to all nations.
